Incredibly Moving

Having been raised in Maine, I was excited to watch this movie as much as I am
for any movie set in the state where I spent my childhood. I was not
disappointed. This movie was not only charming and noteworthy, it also
evoked a certain kind of peaceful serenity and sense of hope in me. I
believe that it was filmed primarily in Canada but the countryside
appeared the same as the rolling blue/green hills of Northern and
Western Maine. The soundtrack is incredible. The music by Damien Jurado
(check out the soundtrack) is often playing in the background like
Hannah's lost husband is an acting character and it is so incredibly
beautiful that you really don't ever want the movie to end. When it
does you really want to go out and buy that soundtrack.

When I watch Hannah struggle through her heartbreak, I am moved.
Rebecca Hall does an amazing job representing a true Maine woman in
all of her glorious strengths and weaknesses. When the winter is cold
and the electricity is out, you light a fire and snuggle up in a
sleeping bag in front of it. That's just what you do- you don't
complain about it. Maine is a tough place. So vast and beautiful and
sprinkled with complex people with their own stories and hardships.
Jason Sudeikis was gorgeous as always. This was a romantic comedy and I
definitely did laugh...often.

The accents are on point and lets be honest, a real Maine accent is
almost impossible to be truly recreated by an actor with no real
experience down east. Every single charming character was perfectly
created and important to the plot, in my opinion, as small as their part
may have been. Finally let me give a huge round of applause to the
writer. The script! Every verbal interaction was so intelligent,
sometimes comedic, sometimes full of emotion and passion. "How is New
York? Full of too many people as always?" It's just smart. I appreciate
dialogue like words on a page. It was beautifully written. Some of us
have been waiting for a movie like this and I couldn't be more
satisfied . It's a definite "buy it, add it to your library, and watch
it again and again on cold winter days" kind of movie. Tumbledown is a
movie metaphor and a mountain...Now I've seen them both with my own
eyes and they are amazing.

Great Move Soundtrack

I just watched this movie as well and really enjoyed both the movie as well as the music. It's a really great album.

An Amazing Surprise

I rented the movie Tumbledown tonight. Just finished watching it. I really loved this quirky heartfelt movie. The music was a nice surprise. Normally I don't pay much attention to soundtracks but the movie would not have worked without it. You have to watch the movie to know what I mean. By the end, I wanted to buy hunter miles' album and was interested to discover the real artist Damien Jurado. Significantly diverse vocals with Beautiful acoustics, and the film score by Daniel hart brought it home. Listen to silver joy.
